What is optimism? Optimism is the ability to see the positive side of things rather than the negative. Optimistic thinkers are usually positive people because they approach life with the expectation that a happy outcome is both desirable and possible. True optimism doesn't mean being unaware of problems; it means actively looking for the positive factors in a situation.

Why is optimism useful? Seeing the positive side of difficult circumstances gives optimists the courage and ability to carry on and try again. They can learn from their mistakes and are able to apply that knowledge at a later stage. Pessimists, on the other hand, tend either to avoid similar situations in the future, or to repeat the same fatalistic errors.

Optimists focus on what they have ach ieved rather than on what might have been. They also have a much broader definition of success than pessimists, and take any sign of progress as evidence of achievement.

You too come become an optimist? Some people seem to be born optimists, but if you are not one of them, it is never too late to achieve an optimistic outlook on life. Here is how you can do it. First, focus on your successes and minimize your failures. Start by taking pleasure in your successes, however small. Don't think that you have just been lucky and that your success won't last. Instead, acknowledge that you have only your own effort and ability to thank.

Then, look for positive features and focus on solutions. As the saying goes: 'Every cloud has a silver lining'. This means that some good can come out of a negative experience. Adopt the PIN code: first look for something positive about the situation'; next look for something interesting in it. Then and only then, look for the negatives. Work out what went wrong and think of what you must do differently in future.

Last but not least, adopt broad-minded attitudes. Your family has been ignoring you a bit. Do you automatically think: 'Nobody cares about me…? Don't jump to conclusions! A broad-minded attitude would be to look for other reasons why they are behaving that way towards you. Think instead: 'They probably have problems of their own. It's nothing personal, and it will pass.'

So learn how to be an optimist and you'll see 'pink stains' in your life, too.
